Should “DFS” be legal ?

In the gambling world there are many different ways of gambling. Gambling being described as a game of chance. Fantasy league to me isn’t that, because in order to pick the right players and the right team you have to have knowledge of that person. Knowledge of that sport and knowing situations and playing conditions, which to me is skill. Where in some states it is illegal to bet on chance and not on skill, so I feel that daily fantasy should be legal to do. Not only does it fit in with the law but it also bring in billions. Saahil Sud has made over 3 million in a year playing daily fantasy sports that alone is enough to make a person a living, some people are even quitting their jobs and living off of fantasy play.

 

Yeah even if it is illegal there are still those who will continue to do it, rather black market, or some type of way that not many can find out about. “Daily games will generate around $2.6 billion in entry fees this year”, that alone will draw in millions of people who are willing to do the gambling illegally. So instead of trying to stop people why not go with it and putting a limit or control on it. Making it legal and putting a tax on it will not only stop the amount of people that do it illegally, but will also give them extra money that they are missing out on.
